Overview

All it takes is just one stitch--and you can "paint" vibrant scenes with embroidery! The beautiful French knot has a versatility rare in needle art, and it gives projects an unusually rich texture, depth, and perspective. The technique, described in detail here, is easy to learn, and there's advice on enlarging or reducing a design, care and laundering, and finding a picture to work from. 10 projects show off the variety of effects stitchers will achieve and inspire them to come up with original ideas. They include several garden pictures--a parterre, herbaceous borders, path, a pergola, and a blossom tree--plus ideas for a lingerie bag, potpourri stem, vase of flowers, and brooch.
